quilt 0.50-2 source package in Ubuntu


quilt (0.50-2) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Raphaƫl Hertzog ]
  * Recommends "default-mta | mail-transport-agent" instead of plain
    mail-transport-agent. Closes: #652734
  * Change the above Recommends into a Suggests. Closes: #652912
  * Drop entirely debian/patches/testsuite_cleanups since it's no longer
  * Integrate 2 small regression fixes from upstream in
    debian/patches/backport-fixes-from-0.50, we could have waited 0.51
    for Debian but this offers a chance to get them in Ubuntu's LTS 12.04.

  [ Martin Quinson ]
  * quilt/header: Add a --dep3 option to include a DEP-3 template
    (Closes: #543355; thanks to Didier Raboud for the report and the
     patch; sorry for the delay)

quilt: Tool to work with series of patches

 Quilt manages a series of patches by keeping track of the changes
 each of them makes. They are logically organized as a stack, and you can
 apply, un-apply, refresh them easily by traveling into the stack (push/pop).
 Quilt is good for managing additional patches applied to a package received
 as a tarball or maintained in another version control system. The stacked
 organization is proven to be efficient for the management of very large patch
 sets (more than hundred patches). As matter of fact, it was designed by and
 for Linux kernel hackers (Andrew Morton, from the -mm branch, is the
 original author), and its main use by the current upstream maintainer is to
 manage the (hundreds of) patches against the kernel made for the SUSE
 This package provides seamless integration into Debhelper or CDBS,
 allowing maintainers to easily add a quilt-based patch management system in
 their packages. The package also provides some basic support for those not
 using those tools. See README.Debian for more information.
